You should get some short term insurance once in the US. Travel insurance won't cover you.

Google 'short term insurance'

A letter from your GP might suffice.

Enroll for Affordable Care Act coverage on arrival - immigration is a qualifying event.

Then switch to your employer's coverage when that kicks in - taking a new job is a qualifying event for switching insurance.

Start with healthcare.gov, and it should send you to the applicable state portal if there is one, otherwise you use the federal portal.
